Tuesday’s Verse, 2/23/21

“How great is the goodness
    you have stored up for those who fear you.
You lavish it on those who come to you for protection,
    blessing them before the watching world.
20 You hide them in the shelter of your presence,
    safe from those who conspire against them.
You shelter them in your presence,
    far from accusing tongues.” Psalm 31:19-20 NLT

The Best Christmas Blessing

As a child, I remember being so excited for Christmas Eve to finally come. First, Santa rode by our house on top of a fire engine waving and shouting “Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas!” All the neighborhood children watched excitedly. It was always cold and often snowing in New Jersey at Christmas.

One of my fondest memories is helping my parents put toys together for my younger siblings on Christmas Eve. I am twelve years older than my brother and 9 years older than my sister, so they were put to bed and fast asleep before the real excitement could begin!

I always loved puzzles (and still do), so I loved putting toys together that might send someone else off the deep end! Plus, it was fun to be included in “playing Santa”.

Playing Santa for my own children brings many joyful memories as well. So I am reminded this Christmas that it truly is more blessed to give than to receive. The real blessing and strongest memories are from giving to others.

If you are troubled this Christmas with money problems and frustrating events, there is a way to save the Christmas season! See where you can give to others. Find someone that you can help. Everything may be upside down this year, but we can still receive the blessing that comes from giving. God blesses us so that we will be able to bless others. God told Abram,

“I will make your name great,
    and you will be a blessing.” (Gen. 12:2).

And the Apostle Paul said,

“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ” Acts 20:35 NIV

Even if your Christmas budget is less than normal (like mine) you can still find ways to give. My sister reminds me that everyone likes to get a gift! Even if someone is able to buy anything they might want, they will still enjoy getting a small gift to open.

One of the gifts I will give this year is handmade crocheted dishcloths made by me! It costs little, but everyone loves them!

Just this morning I was told about a family with six small children that had lost everything. My friend got the word out and we are helping them by donating furniture and anything else we can give. It’s been amazing how quickly everyone stepped up and donated things they need.

And remember this: The best antidote for depression is helping other people! So find a way to bless others and you will be blessed yourself! Have a very merry Christmas!

With Love,

Cindy

Sunday’s Verse, 7/12/20

O Lord, you have examined my heart
    and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up.
    You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
You see me when I travel
    and when I rest at home.
    You know everything I do.
You know what I am going to say
    even before I say it, Lord.
You go before me and follow me.
    You place your hand of blessing on my head.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too great for me to understand!
Psalm 139:1-6 NLT

With Love,

Cindy

A Verse For Today, Christian

A Verse For Today, 11/19/19

“Though our bodies are dying, our inner strength in the Lord is growing every day.  These troubles and sufferings of ours are, after all, quite small and won’t last very long. Yet this short time of distress will result in God’s richest blessing upon us forever and ever!  So we do not look at what we can see right now, the troubles all around us, but we look forward to the joys in heaven which we have not yet seen. The troubles will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever.” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 TLB

With Love,
